Humanities and Social Sciences are all about the study of people, society and culture.
If you want to gain a detailed understanding of human nature and what it means for our world, along with a whole host of transferable skills, then these are the subjects for you!
Studying Humanities and Social Sciences subjects encourages you to develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills, and can help provide a route to university.
Charlie Avis studied A Levels in Geography, Maths and Physics, as well as a PE Diploma during his time at HSDC Havant (previously Havant College) back in 1985, and through these early career-defining decisions his options were opened up to a number of different universities and endless future options.
Now with his career well established, Charlie works as a UN Officer in the United Nations Environment Programme in Geneva, Switzerland.
Reflecting on his time at the former Havant College, Charlie said:
“Havant helped me get three solid A Level passes which basically then gave me my choice of any university.
“This paved the way for me to follow my passion for the environment and, luckily, I’ve been fortunate enough to work in that sector ever since.”
This is a really good college, and it is definitely somewhere you can achieve your dreams.Yolanda Stemp, BTEC student
I’m really happy and pleased with my grades. I really loved my time at the college, I have also made lots of friends, it’s a really nice place to be, I don’t want to leave.Lauren Piper, A Level student
I’m very, very happy, I didn’t expect to do so well. The College has been helpful and supportive. I loved my courses, and the teachers were really good – every single one of them. The facilities are great, but it’s the staff that really make this place.Matthew Randell, A Level student
